and will not run for the united states senate in 2010. i will run for re-election as attorney general. a tough case up there, those watching right now, involving a charge of molestation of children by a pediatrician, earl bradley, which will be the major case up there. he really does have business to do as attorney general. that said, chuck, was there a decision by the biden household that beating mike castle, the congressman up there, was going to be too tough? >> well, look, you know, they're going to -- they're in denial about this. they're saying bo biden did respect the way bo biden is doing this, doing what's in the best interest of bo biden. let's not be naive about this the the entire senate seat in the senate was orchestrated to give bo biden a chance to run for this seat. putting in the caretaker, the senator there, ted kaufman, agreeing having the appointment be made by the previous governor before she left office, so that the new governor, a democrat that came in, didn't have to make the appointment since it was going to look to some to be some sort of way to protect the seat and leave

proviso that this will be visited this spring with a reconciliation bill that united states it's the opportunity to address the concerns of the progressive democrats and others in the caucus. do it with two steps and walk away with a big win. is that possible? >> i'm not going to talk about the various possibilities because they are under discussion right now. obviously number members of speaking among themselves and with leaders about where they think they are. we are talking to them. here's what i believe. you have been around politics all your life. i think the worst possible outcome would be to walk away from this now. what exists right now is a caricature of this legislation. people don't understand what's in the bill. we will get the downside of having supported this and none of the upside of the reality of what it really is. if they pass this bill next november, every democratic candidate who supported it or republican who is come to their senses would be able to say i was the who made sure that people with preexisting conditions get covered and gave seniors more prescri
